Well, you missed the matching time frame for earlier builds. I was
lucky being able to fetch the latest 2.6.24.1 build right in time from
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/openSUSE_Factory
/i586/ and patched it up to .3 myself.

I don't have to have 2.6.24... just a usable stable-ish kernel that is
2.6.22 or higher, and that has the patch applied for the bug I
mentioned earlier. I could patch the kernel sources myself and build
my own, but in this case, this is not on my computer.. it is on a
computer about 500 km away. I have to either walk the user through
adding a kernel repository to Smart or give him some location to
download a pre-built kernel from.

Sorry, my repos are not available from the internet ATM. If you want
2.6.24.x, you need to build it yourself, transfer and install them somehow.
How does smart handle file conflicts btw? The SUSE kernel and syms packages
tend to install the conflicting files
/lib/modules/2.6.18.8-0.5-default/modules.alias?
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=293558

I will test the 2.6.25 kernels from the Factory link above... in tests
on the PAE from KOTD, nVidia drivers would not load (makes sense since
the kernel modules are for 2.6.18), and I could not manually install
the nVidia drivers because gcc4.3 was used to build the kernel and I
only have gcc4.1.

Of course, they don't ;-).. Playing with kernels involves rebuilding the
nvidia stuff. Since the 10.2 nvidia drivers are ancient, too, I've rolled
my own. Now that .spec is, hmm, ambitious.

BTW, Andreas, I filed a bug report with KMP build issues ages ago:
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=271286

Since then, my spec and kernel-module-subpackage macros evolved a lot, but I
got no feedback on this bug (like on the other..).
